Project Spotlight

MEI Completes Eye Catching Cab Upgrade

MEI renovated cab interiors with full LED backlit custom images at 241 Broadway, in Milwaukee’s trendy 3rd Ward. The glass picture panels are fully backlit with images from the Milwaukee area, which were selected by the owner.

In addition to the new rear panels, MEI also added UVC Germicidal & Dual HEPA filtration cab fans on each of the two elevators in the duplex.  These installations are excellent examples of the quality of installation work MEI is known for in Southeastern WI.

The MEI team that helped with this project include account manager John Friedrichs, and mechanics Tam Catterall & David Loessin (LED Cab Panels) and Kyle Jensen & Phil Weller (UVC/HEPA Cab Fans)!

MEI is always there to support our customers and help them with their projects from start to finish. Customer service is a large part of our culture at MEI, and we always try to exceed our customers expectations.

MEI Completes Modernization at Marquette University

Schroeder Hall, a 10-story dormitory at Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI was having frequent service issues with their passenger elevators causing a lot of problems for the 650 students that lived there.

The university contacted Performance Elevator Consulting to find a reliable solution to keep the elevators running smoothly. The consultant began working on a plan to modernize the elevators and MEI was awarded the contract to execute the work.

Marquette University’s overall goal was to make sure the elevators in Schroeder Hall could handle heavy periods of usage, provide residents safe and reliable elevators and ultimately minimize service/repair calls.

Working alongside Magnetek and GAL, MEI began modernizing two passenger elevators. Using GALaxy IV by GAL and Magnetek Quattro AC Cube Elevator Drives, MEI was able to improve the ride quality and operating efficiency of the elevators in Schroeder Hall.

At MEI, we pride ourselves in finding the right solutions for our customers based on their wants and needs while working side by side with our partners in the elevator industry.

Oil Analysis and Filtration

MEI is always looking to provide our customers with solutions to help maintain the operational heath and extend the life of your elevators. Through ongoing research with our industry partners, oil analysis and filtration has developed as a critical preventative procedure to incorporate in your hydraulic elevator maintenance planning.

According to Michael Johnson, author of The Necessity of Oil Monitoring and Filtration, “Hydraulic oil is the lifeblood of the hydraulic system; it is estimated that 80% of failures in an oil system are related to oil quality and cleanliness.”

Oil related failures can include:

  • Overheating Oil
  • Short Seal Life
  • Valve Failure
  • Unintended Car Movement
  • Vibrations and Noise

MEI can help by:

  • Performing a baseline oil analysis with a full report and explanation of the results
  • Provide a proposal for filtration scrubbing to properly filter the elevator oil. This process can be completed without shutting down the elevator!

Emergency Elevator Phone Technology

We value our customer relationships and we strive to be a trusted source for your elevator service needs. Providing great service includes keeping our customers informed of anything in the marketplace we believe you could benefit from. With that said, we are excited to introduce you to Kings III Emergency Communications.

Kings III specializes in elevator help phone monitoring and dispatch. They have been in the industry for nearly 30 years providing value-added benefits not common in the monitoring space and are experts in elevator phone code compliance.

Below are just a few of the many reasons we are recommending Kings III to our customers:
– Dedicated dispatch center answers only emergency calls
– Digital recording, date/time stamp of all calls for risk and liability reduction
– Potential elimination of costly dedicated phone lines via Kings III line seizure technology or cellular options

We believe an initial conversation with Kings III will be well worth your time and we are confident you will find great value in the added benefits of their service. It is important to note that our current elevator maintenance and service agreement will remain unchanged. Kings III is a standalone agreement for installing their elevator emergency phones and providing 24/7/365 monitoring. For example, with Kings III you would simply list MEI on your call dispatch list and our technicians would continue to be dispatched out when needed.

As always, we appreciate your business and the trust you put in us as your elevator service provider.

I wanted to pass along some very kind and glowing words about your company and our guy Joe Grensavitch.
he state inspector was here (nice new guy) and said when he inspects elevators that your company is contracted with he can tell and that you must hold your company to higher standards because the work shows. He also said he GREAT things about Joe, his work is great-impeccable- very clean. (And from me….He is also polite-friendly-professional-knowledgeable-and always lets me know what he is doing or has done). I hope you will share this with others. Your company is obviously doing something right and you have an employee who clearly does a great job and takes pride in his work.
